It is possible to start in an entry level post without formal qualifications but GCSEs or equivalent qualifications are an advantage. Apprenticeships in health informatics are also available. More information is available on the City and Guilds website.

More senior project and programme management roles are likely to need a degree or equivalent experience. A project or programme management qualification may also be helpful such as PRINCE2, APM or Managing Successful Programmes (MSP).  Many IT projects in health now use the AGILE project management methodology.

The NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme also has a health informatics strand for graduates with relevant degrees.
